On Monday, the Lady Saluqis were defeated by Itawamba by scores of 12-2 and 7-3. Southwest was also defeated on Thursday by Northwest Mississippi 3-2 and 10-3.

In the first game against Coahoma, the Lady Saluqis scored 19 runs in the first inning to set a new school record. Tiffany Bright also set single game records with three doubles and five runs batted in, while Kacie Adams also had three hits and drove in four runs. Katie Cerrito and Ginny Glenn each pitched no-hitters with Glenn striking out a season-high eight batters in game two.

On Thursday, Southwest travels (along with the Saluqis' baseball team) to Fulton, Mississippi for a noon twinbill against Itawamba, then will host Columbia State at 10:00 a.m. Saturday at the Appling Complex in the conference opener.
